Edinburg Scenic Wetlands

About the Area

The Edinburg Scenic Wetlands and World Birding Center offers spectacular wildlife views along with unique natural and educational experiences. Colorful native plants and overlooked water resources combine to recreate an endangered wetlands environment at the Edinburg Scenic Wetlands. Shallow ponds attract water-loving creatures, sheltered by fringes of native growth. Around the interpretive center, butterflies vie for nectar from six acres of colorful flowering beds, grown according to nature’s original native design.
